Great for Backpacking

Small size, relatively light weight sturdy poles. Went with these for the aluminum construction and ability to adjust length as carbon can be less forgiving if the pole gets flexed too much. Looking forward to future hikes with these.

Great lightweight poles

I was so excited to purchase these poles for a trip to Zion and Bryce Canyon. They did not disappoint! They are nice and lightweight, easy to put together, an break down smaller. The perfect everyday trekking poles and for travel.

Great Poles

Bought these to replace a pair of Alpine FLZ but I wanted something more compact for travel and mountain trekking / running. I did not thought that the carbon premium was a must and I am really satisfied so far. Definitely recommended.

Lightweight and Compact

I've used it several times

These are my first set of trekking poles and I'm very happy with them. I chose this model (Distance FLZ Trekking Poles) based on reviews that described them as quiet and vibration-free and I agree with that assessment. They are extremely lightweight and compact, but also feel very sturdy when used. I've taken them on a steep and muddy trail up and down a canyon and felt more sure-footed than ever, especially on the downhills and crossing rocky streams.

Lightweight foldable poles

I had an very old pair of Black Diamond foldable poles, but lost one. These are lighter than the last pair but look just as strong. My last pair had a nice nylon case which I have also lost. This is new pair did not come with a case which I would have liked. It came with a velcro ties which I believe i've already lost. Rubber bands work to keep them together.

Quality and durable Trekking stick

Hiking every week at the Appalachian requires a good hiking stick and this product never fails to do it's job. The easy adjust makes it eaiser to change the lenght depending on the terrain and whenever going on a ascend or descend.

walk that extra mile with these

Perfect choice for backpacking: they are sturdy, light and fit in your back pack when travelling overseas. I will make good use of them on the Via Alpina next summer.

Gave me 40% off even though poles were 6 yrs old

I bought a pair of these poles in 2017 and have used them for hundreds of miles. The locking mechanism jammed and I inquired if it could be fixed. They said no but gave me a 40% off code. Bought the same poles again am excited to use them.

Perfect poles

Couldn’t ask for better poles. Very very small weight penalty versus the carbon poles but the added durability is worth it for my application (propping up a beta tent). They are seriously durable and very packable for flying. Note: in my opinion, if you aren’t using them as part of a shelter system and you have the budget, the carbon poles would be worth looking at.
